Presenting a picture of the data
Designing an effective visual solution to display complex background maths calculations led to scripting in three different programming languages. The result was a web application to be used as a tool in the battle against diabetes.
A graphical solution was required to display data entered into an NHS online calculator to show the probability of a child developing Type-1 diabetes later in life.
The calculations were complex, and the real-time interplay between the maths, user interface, and the graphical elements presented a challenge.
A simple uncluttered layout was designed so as to support ease of use for all users.
- Three different programming languages used to create the final interface
- Real-time interaction with the background calculations
- Standard data entry inputs to ensure user familiarity (ie sliders, radio buttons and check boxes)
- Simple use of colour and icons to support results output
Whilst the appearance may be clean and uncluttered, the application has the opportunity to make a considerable impact on the battle against diabetes. Used as one of the tools available, an early warning predictor can allow individuals to make changes to avoid health issues later in life.
